This review is from: SYBA SY-PEX40039 SATA III (6.0Gb/s) Controller Card
Pros: The card is faster then SATA2.
Tops out at 388MB/s on X58 E758 PCIe2.0 x8 port
It is bootable, and will boot your SSD to Windows
Cons: Works on 16x slot, not so good on x4 slot slower
3 Days trying figure this out.
Will not work if you have a RAID on your system,
No I do not mean the card does not RAID, it's not a raid card I know that, What I mean is:
I have a RAID0 with 4 WD Blacks on my X58 onboard ICH10R ports that works great without this card being present., If I have a drive plugged into this card my RAID disappears in BIOS, In fact I cannot configure my ICH10R if I have a drive hooked into this card. It BIOS configuration for ICH10R is gone.
Also this will put load on your CPU, I'm using an i7 920 @ 3.6GHZ and when benchmark shoes 2.3% CPU usage vs my onboard less then 1%, not a big deal, and is expected.
Other Thoughts: Works just fine in AHCI mode, or in RAID Mode as long as you dont have a RAID on your system. It will cancel your raid.
Seems like a firmware needs updated to separate this from the Motherboard BIOS.
My System is
EVGA X58 E758 motherboard
RAID0 x 4 WD Blacks on the ICH10R
Using the latest version 83 BIOS
Like I said the card works OK, not great, could be my motherboard slowing the card down, that's expected.
I would much rather just ugrade my platform to X99,
but that's expensive.
This review is from: Newegg Premier 3 Month Membership
Pros: I've saved more on shipping then I paid for the membership
Not to mention you get the faster shipping option for less.
It's paid for itself in just 2 small orders.
Great if I have to Return something, Restocking fee is waived. and reshipping is free. this is great for returning customers.
Cons: You have to order products to save money. lol..
Other Thoughts: This is great if you have shopping to do, I just grabbed the 3 month, because I'll be making some purchases within this time. Remember they charge your account automatically so you need to cancel before that unless you want to continue the membership.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works great, Easy to install just take your time and review the instructions. it is so easy if done correctly. takes only seconds to install, no glue, no spray. no adhesive it just kind of rolls on perfectly. actually really amazing.
Cons: No Cons..
Other Thoughts: I was in such a hurry and thought I would just slap this thing on, but I ruined the first one, good trial run, so I sat down and calmly read through the directions, and the second one went on smooth and effortlessly. did not even need the squeegee card. Minus the one I ruined I'm still using the first one for over 2 months. It's thick and protective, yet clear. Best screen protector I have ever purchased. I'm looking for a pack of these for my 520 small work phone, this review is for my 1520. I recommend this product.READ FULL REVIEW
